Access/ABILITY

We just opened a new exhibit here at Please Touch Museum!



It’s called “Access/ABILITY” and it presents people living with disabilities as participants in the world. The exhibit features fun and engaging activities that show similarities and differences in how each of us go places, communicate, have fun and learn.

Some of the things you can do:


· Going Places: Visitors can explore a wheelchair obstacle course and a multi-sensory City Walk.

· Talk with Me: Visitors learn phrases in American Sign Language, type their names in Braille and communicate using pictures.


· Just for Fun: Try a hand-pedaled bike and create art using sight, touch and sound.

· Think about It: Visitors test their attention and memory skills.


· Invent It: Experience design challenges, discover multiple ways to accomplish tasks and learn how things can be designed to work for the largest number of people.

· Resource Area: Visitors can learn more through books and online resources.



Come visit, have fun and make some new friends!

We're all about learning through play.
